Roberto,

     Spamfilter is set to start as a service. Taking a look at the service properties I saw that spamfiltersvc.exe runs with a parameter "/startedbyscm:F9D641D8-40E26D57-SpamFilter".

     What is this parameter ? Im using build 1.1.2.122.

     Does Spamfilter sends any kind of information to Logsat ?

Thanks,

Abel.

Starting from v1.1.0.93 we drastically changed the way the SpamFilterSvc NT service behaved. This was done in part to try to make it work under Terminal Services (we failed, it did not work...) and to eliminate certain access violations and issues with NT4 (those we did fix). Doing that required that we start the service with that parameter to give Windows certain info regarding our service (startedbyscm - Started by Service Control Manager). The SID-like number that follows should be the same for all SpamFilter installations for all users, it in no way identifies you! (I'm sure about W2K and NT4, but I honestly did not check an XP install..)

SpamFilter issues a standard http GET request on port 80 to http://www.logsat.com/spamfilter/version.htm to display what the latest build available is. When that happens your IP does appear in our webserver server logs...  there's not much we can do to stop that! But you can disable this feature if you wish.
